1. Present In Human History For Thousands Of Years

The first actual documentation of the domestication of a pigeon was found on a cuneiform tablet from Mesopotamia, almost 5000 year ago. Even in Egypt, the remains of pigeons have been found alongside those of humans.

Across history, pigeons have been used as a religious symbol. They have been both celebrated and sacrificed in religious practices.
